LGBT Pride Participants - LISTEN WELL

Siddur Avodos Yisrael lists psalms to recite each Sabbath of the year, corresponding to the Torah readings. How fitting that Tehillim 65 was this past Shabbat's Parsha Eikev reading. It came on the hills of the LGBT pride parade in the holy city of Jerusalem! Shame on the LGBT community - as well as the instigators.

Artscroll heads the chapter with the following: A prayer for the time when people will realize the futility of rebelling against G-d, and will completely accept His mastery.

And the verses that stood out for me when I read it.....

5 I said to the perverse, "Do not behave perversely," and to the wicked, "Do not raise the horn.
 ה אָמַ֣רְתִּי לַ֖הֽוֹלְלִים אַל־תָּהֹ֑לּוּ וְ֜לָֽרְשָׁעִ֗ים אַל־תָּרִ֥ימוּ קָֽרֶן
6 Do not raise your horn on high, [do not] speak with [your] fat neck.ואַל־תָּרִ֣ימוּ לַמָּר֣וֹם קַרְנְכֶ֑ם תְּדַבְּר֖וּ בְצַוָּ֣אר עָתָֽק:

Artscroll translates:
I said to the unruly revelers, be not unruly; and to the wicked, raise not your pride. Raise not heavenward your pride, with a haughty neck nor speak insolence.
Teshuva is in order. I would very much like to see my Jewish brothers and sisters written in the Book of Life.As of now, they are the walking dead. The month of Elul begins in a few days. Please do teshuva!
